What skills and experience we're looking for

Required from Tuesday 27 August 2024, a colleague who has a proven track record of leadership within a strong MFL Faculty that offers both French and Spanish to all ages 11-16. We require a confident leader who is capable of teaching Spanish up to GCSE level. This is an exciting time to continue to move the faculty further forward since the interest in languages has grown over the past 4 years.

The successful candidate will be passionate about languages and keen to share new ideas and good practice with an already thriving team. The faculty can expect high levels of support and investment from the school leadership and the board of trustees. As a school we are committed to languages for all and to ensuring the GCSE outcomes remain excellent.
